I am the executive chef of a casual fine dining Italian restaurant and have been in the hospitality industry for 12 years. I am very goal oriented and driven, to the point of being restless. I really love what I do and believe that "food is love" and enjoy cooking for others in a non professional atmosphere. I try to give 110% to everything I do and am very commited to whatever I do, I am a doer not a sayer! As for everything else in my life it all depends on what I am feeling like which makes my tastes eclectic. If you want to know more it is better to ask, cause I won't waste my time listing of a bunch of likes and dislikes. Besides who doesn't like a conversation with a random stranger?
I'm not sure what an ideal first date would be, but since food is a core of my life and I value good food a nice dinner in a quite atmosphere is a starter. We would explore beliefs and interests over a nice dinner and perhaps a glass of wine(I believe in chivalry so expect door holding and the tab to be covered.) Obviously since we would be getting to know each other a movie is garbage. A nice walk in a park or around town, or an evening stroll along the beach where we could further discuss things and determine whether we have future potential.Maybe even some games of pool. I would go as far to say if the weather is a nice,a great early evening picnic with some nice light music and watching the sunset. In any case a good date takes input from both parties.
